McAllen Chamber’s Creative Art’s Incubator offers

Studio and Workspace at an affordable price

The McAllen Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for artists who are interested in becoming tenants of the McAllen Creative Incubator.  With help from the city, the McAllen Chamber has created 20 low cost artist studios and office spaces for expanding artists and art organizations.  The Cultural Arts Department houses artists of different art disciplines such as porcelain painting, choir lessons and a children’s Acting Studio, just to name a few.  The studio spaces vary in size and price.

To apply for studio space, interested artists need to submit a completed application, samples of work, resume and a business plan. Prospective tenants, who are on our waiting list, will be considered first.  Then, the prospective tenant will meet with a representative of the McAllen Chamber of Commerce.  Applications can be pick-up at the Creative Incubator located at 601 N. Main Street, McAllen  or it is also available online at http://www.mcallenart.com/studio-directory.

For assistance with the business plan, set an appointment with Mr. Ivan Gonzalez, VP of Business Development for the McAllen Chamber of Commerce at 956-687-2787.  Completed application and business plan can be submitted directly to the McAllen Creative Incubator or the McAllen Chamber of Commerce, at 1200 Ash, P.O. Box 790, McAllen, 78505.

“The Incubator is a stepping stone for artists to develop their much desired dream of someday having a studio, business or gallery.  Our vision is to see art flourishing in McAllen, by providing the public access to exhibitions, performances and associated events by our talented Incubator Tenants.” said Laura Robles, Cultural Arts and Incubator Coordinator for the McAllen Chamber of Commerce.

The goal of the McAllen Creative Incubator is to support the continued professional growth of artists and enhance the cultural and economic vitality of our local community.  Applications will be accepted on a continual basis.  For more information please contact Laura Robles at 956-682-2871 or via email at lrobles@mcallencvb.com.
